Batsheva Watching

Batsheva Dance Company

I can hardly contain my excitement at Batsheva Dance Company's first performance in Houston tomorrow. Just in case some of you want to do some pre-Batsheva homework, I have a few reading suggestions. Start with Molly Glentzer's Houston Chronicle preview. Proceed directly to Susan Yung's interview with Ohad Naharin in The Brooklyn Rail.

I saw Decadance two summers ago with the Cedar Lake Ballet, and even got dragged on stage during the audience participation part. Tip: Don't try to look invisible. Also enjoy Deborah Jowitt's review in The Village Voice.
